“Every kid’s introduction to dance should be as natural and easy as this show.” - Time Out Chicago Kids

Based on the beloved story by Crockett Jackson and accompanied by Andrew Bird’s musical score, a young, curious boy named Harold draws to discover his next adventure. Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is among the most original forces in contemporary dance. As one of the only professional dance companies to perform year-round, Hubbard Street has been continually touring nationwide and internationally for the past 35 years. Hubbard Street 2’s dancers reach thousands annually with valuable outreach in schools, site-specific work in museums and cultural institutions and repertoire performances.

"My goal," says original director Taryn Kaschock Russell, "is to inspire creation. I want children and families to leave the theater feeling like the world around them is their canvas, waiting to be brought to life. I want them to realize that every move they make — whether they’re walking, running, spinning or, yes, dancing — they’re adding color to the world that they are creating.”

Recommended for Ages 4 and Up. Running time is 1 hour.

PRE-SHOW: Join us one hour prior to each performance for an educational activity. Print out the Harold coloring sheets at home by clicking here and bring them the day of the performance. We will work together to create a “collective canvas.”

POST-SHOW: A Q&A with Company Members will take place on October 5 immediately after the 5pm show, and October 6 immediately after the 2pm show.
